the NFC North quarterback picture

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

The possibility of Brett Favre joining the Vikings has spawned a lot of conversation about the NFC North, the old black-and-blue division, suddenly boasting the strongest-armed passing attacks in the NFL.  Dave Birkett of the Oakland Press decided to rank the NFC North QBs, first-to-worst.  He assumes that the Favre deal will eventually happen, and that the Lions could be starting either Stafford or Culpepper come Week 1.  Of course, if Culpepper is truly back in 2004 form, his arm is nearly as strong as Stafford's, the autumn "air show" will happen no matter who's under center for the Lions.
